Muscle grafts could help amputees sense and control artificial limbs
A new surgical technique devised by MIT researchers could allow prosthetic limbs to feel much more like natural limbs. Through coordination of the patient’s prosthetic limb, existing nerves, and muscle grafts, amputees would be able to sense where their limbs are in space and to feel how much force is being applied to them.

Stanford scientists create a cellular guillotine for studying single-cell wound repair
While doing research at the Woods Hole Marine Biological Laboratory in Massachusetts, Sindy Tang learned of a remarkable organism: Stentor coeruleus. It's a single-celled, free-living freshwater organism, shaped like a trumpet and big enough to see with the naked eye. And, to Tang's amazement, if cut in half it can heal itself into two healthy cells.

New flu test: one drop of blood could save your life
Australian researchers have developed a world first test to identify which influenza patients will need urgent, life-saving, medical treatment. The High-risk Influenza Screen Test (HIST) measures 'an early warning signal' released by the patient's body into their blood to 'kick start' their immune system's fight against the infection.

Microphysiological Systems: ethically correct and highly realistic

Nobody wants to miss out on the blessing of modern medicine. But despite all of its advances, there is still one downside: animal testing. It's hotly contested for a variety of reasons. On the one hand, it is ethically questionable, while the transfer of results and application to humans is not always accurate on the other. The microphysiological systems of the Fraunhofer IWS offer an alternative.
